Reportedly bad Rod Serling script from a novel by Jack Finney, of all people, John (I haven't seen this one yet). I dug caper movies, as well, but GOLDEN BULLS didn't cut it for me, then...but I did enjoy the likes of THE GREAT RACE then, so go figure (and the likes of FORBIDDEN GAMES and RASHOMON, on the Janus Collection PBS THEATER package, but I was a video junkie then, even moreso than now).

okay, I haven't seen this picture since I was a kid either. but back then I

liked it a lot. I imagine that upon viewing it now, it's probably every bit

as dated as the similarly vintaged ASSAULT ON A QUEEN. however caper movies

like that had everything I liked about movies in them, and I'll continue to remember it fondly.

had no idea BULLS was based on a book. have to track it down. anyone know if QUEEN was as well?
